Sky Q 2TB box - Recording live broadcasts when they overruns their time slot.

Hi everyone. πŸ™‹β€β™‚οΈ

 

First of all I hope y'all had a great Christmas and best wishes for 2019! πŸ‘πŸ»

 

Memories of my old Sky + HD box are getting very foggy so I'm probably wrong but I thought that when live broadcasts (which were being recorded) went on longer than scheduled the box would continue recording. 

 

I record a lot of live sport with my Sky Q 2TB box and it never continues to record if a broadcast overruns it's time slot. 

 

I looked for options to make it automatically keep recording andΓΎor add 'x' amount of minutes to the end recordings but so far as I know there aren't any.

 

So.... should it continue to record when programs overrun? 

 

Many thanks in advance. 😊

If it’s that important and likely to run on record the program afterwards. There is no manual record on Sky Q

Hi @everway9 the broadcaster should adjust the record times on the fly if their shows overrun but many don't especially overnight so @skinner1965's suggestion is a good one.

Hi @Chrisee and cheers for your post. 😊

 

Recently that broadcaster has been Sky Sports. Both the live HD and UHD broadcasts of the PDC World Darts Championship. 

 

But yeah... I'll start recording the programs after
